Hey, I bought my 2010 DC SR5 automatic about a month ago, I have about 700Kms on it and it is acting up really bad. I have never owned a new vehicle so I am not sure if it is just settling and adjusting itself or if there is something wrong. I have been reading a few different forums but I can't seem to find a solution. I don't want to take it in if I am just being paranoid. So I am hoping to get a little advise from some experianced owners.
It runs perfect first thing in the morning. I mean it is responsive when I touch the gas and it idles just over 1 and switches gears around 2500-3000. The kind of get up and go that I appreciate in a small truck.
Once it is warmed up it is a completely different truck. I mean, I can lay my foot on the floor and nothing happens than POW it kicks into gear. This happens in both D and R both while I am driving and while I am taking off from stop. Generally once its in motion I have to give it a good half peddle before anything happens, and it has the same hesitation. If I am going over 80KM and try to accelerate it feels like it is in too high/low of a gear it is really noisy and nothing happens. I have been paying close attention to the rpms lately hoping it would provide some help, it is NEVER over 1300 once warmed up, it idols just under 1000. So now I wonder if the computer is calculating the gears correctly or if its an air intake issue, or if this is just completely normal and I just need to get used to it.
